Did another person's negligence cause you to suffer physical harm? If so, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses by filing a personal injury claim in a Louisiana civil court. Why would you want to do that? What might your case be worth?
People choose to file personal injury claims for a number of reasons. At the end of the day, it all usually comes down to holding people accountable and seeking relief for one's losses. You experienced a traumatic event that left you physically scarred and likely affected you psychologically and financially. You should not have to shoulder your losses alone.
Before moving forward with any legal action, people tend to want to know what their cases may be worth. Every case is different. How much you might be awarded depends on various factors, including negligence, comparative negligence, documented losses and state laws regarding compensation, among others. Legal counsel may be able to give you an estimate as to how much your case is worth. The goal is always to seek maximum relief for personal injury victims.
Many personal injury cases are settled out of court, and it may be to your benefit to work out a settlement this way. If, however, negotiating fair relief is not working out, having legal counsel that is ready to fight for you in a Louisiana courtroom is a must. With the right help, you may be able to walk away from all of this with the money you need to cover your treatment expenses, lost wages and benefits, and other losses -- whether economic or non-economic in nature.
